Sheets of Cleaning | 2016



I downloaded ink and words onto sheets of paper simply to clean the stamp before using it again.

I emptied a rubber stamp of ink and words onto sheets of paper simply to clean it prior to re-use. On these sheets of paper, everything is mixed together, and certain words are repeated. Some catch the eye more quickly than others: Alegria [Joy], Cavo [Hollow], Fundo e triste [Deep and sad], Escuro, confuso e doloroso [Dark, confused and painful], Sombrio e sombras [Bleakness and shadow].
